years and remained seller. let's take them one at the time. work first over education training. offering adult welfare recipients education and training may sound nice, but study after study has shown that it doesn't work. the key has been to require 100 percent engagement in work or work-life activity. in force consequences for families. in order to receive the government's cash assistance, welfare applicants or recipients have got show up and show us they're actively engaged in work or getting there and we will honor they are doing this. strong antifraud measures. welfare programs cannot be naive about the capacity of citizens to try to get it over on the system. we are not afraid to check asset and income, residency, and identity to be be sure the taxpayer funded benefits are going those who legitimate qualify. and performance-based contracts. we pay our not for profit private sector vendors. they were one of the fist social agency to use 100% performance-based contract to provide performance. and we continue do so today. now there is another element of our success that i want to give
's take them one at a time. work first over education. offering adult welfare recipients education and training may sound nice, but study after study has shown it doesn't work. the key to spend to acquire 100% engagement in work or work like activity. in force consequences for families who comply. in order to receive the government's cash assistance, welfare applicants or recipients have got to show up and shows that they are actually engaged in work, or getting work. we will vigorously monitor that. strong anti-fraud measures. welfare programs cannot be naÏve about the capacity of citizens to deceive or try to get over on the system. we are not afraid to check assets and income and residencies and identity to be sure taxpayer funded benefits of going to those who legitimately qualify. and performance-based contracts. we pay our not-for-profit and private sector vendors for accomplishment. hra was when the first social service agencies that use 100% of performance these contracts to provide employment services to welfare recipients, and we continue to do so today. there is another
mean to the education camps and execution and all of those things. so i think the discussion that has to be made between leaders and their constituents is that if we see something that we can rectify, we should. but we have to understand the limitations of those interventions, because you are far worse off if you fail if you have never gone there to start with. this brings us to syria. i'm ashamed. i'm ashamed. i'm ashamed as an american. i've been to refugee camps and met the women have been gang raped. i've met the families have watched their kids shot before their eyes. i've met the defectors who said their instructions are to go around and kill and rape and torture. and while we sit by and watch that happen, without even giving them weapons to defend themselves, this will be a shameful chapter in american history, my friends, because we could've done something. and we can do something today but we won't. i hear that the new president has been reelected, we will be re-examining all. only 37,000 people have been massacred, i guess in the grand scheme of things that's not too many co
that freedom requires i would just like to hear your thoughts and education we address the teachers, the curriculum and all these things that are major problems children come to school without virtues and the schools are trying to nurture character and education that i'm not sure you believe the public schools is the place to nurture that were held as our society or culture doesn't march to nurture those virtues. how do we address problems in the schools? can you address these virtues? >> this is a good question. moynihan said the family of the smallest school, and by the time a lot of negligently parenthood to no fault of their others are doing their best, these children go to school and it is too late. i remember chicago school teachers saying she routinely gets first graders who do not know numbers, sheikhs or colors. because she said no one ever cooking dinner turned around and said green round of peace. there are in a culture of silence except for television. showing three runs of jeopardy. as i say, it is america's biggest problem. thank you very much.

vital issues in the pending tray marked too difficult. so we've broken the monopoly of state education with free schools providing excellent education free to parents who send their children there. we've also established 2,000 academy schools. we've stopped dumbing down. we've introduced tough new powers on discipline in the classroom. there's a whole set of issues that are subject to this long-term reform from this government, issues like putting our universities on a sustainable footing so they can compete with the very best in the world and give everyone a chance to go to them irrespective of their background or income, modernizing our energy and transport infrastructure so we can keep up with our competitors in the global race, regulating our banks properly, so that immoral behavior and the gross mistakes of the past are not repeated. we're dealing with the challenges of an ageing population. we've reformed public-sector pensions so they are both affordable and fair for both public-sector workers and the taxpayer. in every case, we've put the national interest at the heart of this
today on c-span, the student debt crisis starting at 630 eastern. education reporter marion wing joins the panel on the impact a student at on families followed live at it:00 with calls, e-mails command tweets along with "wall street journal" reporter josh mitchell later today on c-span. >> afghan president is visiting the u.s. this week. tomorrow meeting with president obama at the white house. also tomorrow, speaking at georgetown university. that is at 5:30 p.m. eastern, and you can see it live on our companion network, c-span. >> the "washington post" recently held a forum on women. labor secretary held that silas spoke about her career from and turning in the white house during the carter administration to serving in the obama administration. since this discussion from december, the secretary announced she is leaving her post at the end of the president's first term. >> good morning, and welcome. we have a remarkable gathering of women this morning, and they are -- their personal stories and backgrounds are as varied as america itself. they come from los angeles and cleveland and
administration has not delivered on its campaign promises, things like dismantling the department of education, getting rid of the department of energy, cutting down on government spending. clearly government spending is far more than it was when reagan took office. taxes are greater. in terms of performance, in terms of delivering our campaign promises in 1988 think it is indeed a failure in that sense. now, it's a success in another sense, namely that i think that the level of debate has been raised in our country on a whole range of issues. a key one is the legitimate role of government in a free society. c-span: that is a call in show here at the end of the reagan administration. what is your reaction when you hear that today? >> guest: well, there is not much that has changed. we still need to ask, or settle, what is the legitimate role of government in a free society and a legitimatlegitimat e role of government in a free society is not that of government taking what belongs to one american and giving it to another american to whom it does not the long. c-span: have you ever in your life
on transparency of the public sources. it means fighting for justice in terms of education for the population so that they can work with determination to make their contribution to rebuilding their respective economies. the success knows no frontiers. and my officers will be dedicated, not only to getting haitians into the schools, to keeping up the fight against corruption, to establishing a rule of law, and my hope and trust is that the results will come. within less than two years, more than a million children have been left by the wayside now have free access to education. without any effort other than what has come from our treasury. already the effort for reconstruction is paying off with more than 1 million homeless people finding accommodation. and part of this, these benefits, come from the money, from you, the taxpayer's. and i say to them, all of our gratitude, to ensure that their solidarity has not been wasted. those who are most vulnerable are the ones who benefit the most. we wish well a country based on rule of law, and it is taking shape in front of our eyes, but yet the institu
government collects, leaving nothing for education, national defense, or other essential programs. we have no illusion that putting our country on a sound and responsible fiscal course will be easy. it clearly will not. our government is divided and conflicted because the american people are divided and conflicted. but we cannot ignore this crisis any longer. nor can our leaders. as important as economic growth is, we can't grow our way out of this problem, and we certainly can't tax our way out. what we must address is the fundamental reality that due to our aging society, and increased life expectancy, the entitlement programs written and designed for an earlier era must be revised. we are not talking about cuts in absolute terms. we are simply talking about slowing the rate of increase, and this can be achieved with reasonable adjustment phased in over a number of years. comprehensive tax reform is another essential part of the solution to our fiscal crisis. the right kind of tax reform will make us more competitive across the globe, and empower our businesses, small and large, here at
, the need for poll workers training to be clear and voters to be a better educated. from my perspective those are systems of a system that is not designed for this kind of thing. we are asking pol workers to do more today than was ever contemplated when the idea of having a community poll workers was conceived. in my jurisdiction trying to serve 12 different languages across 4800 different polling places on election day is not a model that is sustainable. >> one last comment before i move on to don rehill, it is very valuable to have individuals like yourself who are both an election official but also a county clerk, engage in the discussion about the next generation of voting systems. for those of us to deal exclusively with voting systems we are a bit myopic at times about where we see government solutions going to. county clerks on the other hand, their offices are filled with applications that provide the kinds of services at a level and a cost point that their constituents are looking for beyond voting systems. i really like that perspective that you bring. as i said earlier many o
be in jail. when they walk into the inner city areas and start talking about poor children's education, it's not because they want kids to read and write. it's because they know the government spent $600 billion a year on education and they want it and they are going to get it. there is no mechanism left except civil disobedience and having covered movements of a round the world, the revolutions in eastern europe, the palestinian uprising sort the street demonstrations that brought down slobodan milosevic, you know the tinder is there. i spent the last two years in the poorest pockets of the country from camden new jersey to the produce fields in florida, the fields of southern west virginia to the you know the tinder is there but you never know what's going to set it off. it's usually something relatively benign. an elderly woman gets for close to her home in utah or something. but i know that it's coming. will it look like occupy? will it be called occupy? you may never know. i think it's better to think of occupy not as a movement, but as a tactic. rosa parks refused to move on the bus.
's energy. when it comes to hydraulic. we have opportunities going on in 11 states to continue to educate around the breakthrough technology and part of the game-changing opportunity. we say technologies plural, we don't refine and develop not only those technologies but many others. >> thanks for doing this, jack. [inaudible] >> good to see you again. >> you mentioned keystone pipeline. i wonder if you have an assessment whether or not president obama will approve or reject the pipeline. if he does reject it what would the political consequences be? >> we are hopeful he will approve it. we're encouraged what we're learning from the white house the latest report coming out of the nebraska. the governor has to make a final decision there and advance it to the department of state. we're hopeful the president will approve it. when you look from the jobs perspective of the energy needs of the united states, as prime minister harper said, it's a no brainer. we're hopeful the president will step forward. i think it's the indication of the commitment based on the promise to the american people.
strategy in personal and what provisions can nasa meek for the retraining of those highly educated nasa scientists and technicians if you end up with those people dhaka they are going to be right now from what i & understand. and two of sort these scientists and highly skilled people that were trained with tax dollars they are going to carry knowledge that no one else possesses that could be valuable to the country can the market absorb those? >> congressman, as we look at one of our tasks was to examine the organizational structure and then by changes to improve the effectiveness of the mission activity. so that is how we address that. as you arrive at new strategic objectives and goals and then nasa creates a strategic plan to accomplish those, we recommend flexibility, not necessarily how it would turn out in terms of the ability to look at personnel and infrastructure aligned with fees' strategic goals and objectives and implementation plans. so, we did note that the jet propulsion lab is a structure and contract folks that are engaged in many aspects of research development and ope
to educate around these breakthrough technologies. and it really is part of a game changing opportunity. we think technologies, plural, will continue to refine and develop not only those technologies but many others. >> you under thank you for doing this. >> good to see you again. >> you mentioned the keystone pipeline a couple times in your speech but i wonder if you could come if you have an assessment whether my president obama will reject or approve the pipeline? if he does reject it won't be the political consequences be? >> we are hopeful that he will approve it, and right now we are encouraged i what we're hearing from the white house. obviously, as a result of alleged report coming from the state of nebraska, the governor has to make a final decision that may affect the department of state. but we're hopeful the president will approve. i think we'll look at it from a jobs perspective, from the energy needs of the united states, as prime minister harper said on a number of occasions, it's a no-brainer. so we're hopeful the president will step forward. i think will be an early indicat
educated decisions about which services to get and where to get them. um, the -- i'd have to say the evidence is mixed to date as to exactly how well these plans are working. their costs are certainly lower, but are they lower because the whole idea's working, or are they lower because healthier people tend to go for a high deductible coverage and less healthy people tend to stick with traditional coverage? that remains to be seen. >> let's take another question in the rear, please. >> thank you, jessica -- [inaudible] with modern health care. could you talk a little bit about why the reasons why there was a slower or growth in hospital spending in 2011, please? >> um, sure. so the things that we mentioned, um, in the presentation and also in the article, um, the main driver being slowdown of prices. we've been at 3% growth in prices for the previous three years, and then in 2011 we saw a slowdown in prices that are being charged by hospitals. um, in addition to that, we saw a decline b in inpatient days and a slowdown in outpatient visits for 2011 reported by the american hospit
in crucial areas like education, technology, science, and energy." what's on the table for cuts? no social security, no medicare, the major drivers of benefits, but are the drivers of debt and deficit. what's on the table for spending cuts? >> guest: okay. there's a lot of questions there. >> host: right. >> guest: first of all, you know, the major drivers of the current deficits are two things. tax cuts for the wealthy and wars in iraq and afghanistan. this has been well documented by economists. let's not pretend like grandmother is responsible for the deficits. she's not. i promise you. yeah, you know, what would define a spending cut, again, cutting the amount of money that would pay for prescription drugs. getting the same drugs for $130 billion cheaper by untying medicare and medicaid's hands and lay low them to negotiation. that's a cut to save money, impacting the big guy, not the little guy. you know, if we sub subsidize ie name of family farmers, agriculture corporations. we, warn in the campaign talk about a balanced, and the rich on the revenue side, and increase the revenue si
the cuts in education and investments and innovation which i think are a false economy because they do reduce the possibility for growth rather than increase it. so i don't hear -- none of us is saying we are not going to talk about spending cuts. >> typically they are indicating now that they still want larger than any ever debt limit increase. >> i think that is a complete manifestation of the philosophy that is at work on the republican side. if you do not believe in the public role, if you do not heed the call of president washington that a political party shouldn't be at war with our own government, then you would disagree with what the republicans are doing. every day if you see the ryan budget that they deemed passed yesterday, passed on the floor yesterday, it practically directs that all of the things the public role plays a part in clean air, clean water, public safety, public education, public transportation, public housing, public health, medicaid, social security. so if you think there should be more spending than reaching the debt limit, if you do that a couple of times,
that allows them to deal with those tough issues in an educated way and resources to help. and i think that's where we look at our responsibility as, is to help them navigate that decision. that's a personal decision and a hard decision. and let that decision be on the family members and the provider. but we are believers that hospice, especially in circumstances that it's not, um, promising, is the right way to do. and so you take it from a cost discussion to a quality of life discussion. and to me, when you make that quality of life discussion and make the right decision, the cost discussion are bear out -- will bear out there. >> if i understand your point, it is that integrated care is what's going to lead to the efficiencies to eliminate waste and to bring down the cost of the entire health care system. >> i probably just answered the question he was trying to ask me 15 different times. >> the devil, of course, is in the details. >> yeah. >> who is going to be making these decisions as to whether care is provided or not? we all remember it wasn't so long ago that thanks to our insuranc
